A PRODUCTION BY…

BEING DEVELOPED IN THE ONE AND ONLY PROGRAM (WORTH MENTIONING)…

A GAME WHICH IS COMING SOON TO INTERNET NEAR YOU…

Currently in development, TANKWARZ is your fix for carnage and mayhem. Here is a overview of what we are working on and what to expect in the release.

Meet The Character(s)…
In the small, twisted and wonderful world of TANKWARZ a new type of tank has hit the scene. Packed with some of the highest of technological advancements and gadgets, this tank is more advanced than any other combat vehicle know to this day. Let us introduce you too…

The Armoured Tactical Retreat Vechicle (ARTV) aka, “The French Can”:
http://www.zanev.com/tankwarz_images/FrenchCan.jpg

Now while this hunk of sweet machinery isn’t tearing up the battlefield its in the arena fighting other like minded tanks.

The Big Guns and Other Technical Weaponry
As mentioned before the “French Can” is one of the most advanced combat vehicle in this day and age and that isn’t accomplished with pretty flashing lights and gleaming surfaces, no its the most advanced because it can make the biggest hole in the side of its opposition. Lets take a peek under the hood and see what weapons this beast supports:

  • Ye Old Faithful Canon - A tank isn’t a tank if it doesn’t have a canon, so the “French Can” was outfitted with the biggest money could buy. This canon can put dint in anything that is put in front of it. Downside: Accuracy is not its greatest attribute

  • Sonic Blast - Imagine being hit by a tidal wave but instead of water it is made of pure sound. Like a tidal wave of water this sound wave makes you take a step back or two, so when your tank is hit by it you don’t want to be anywhere near the edge of the arena. Downside: It needs to be fully charged before it can be fired.The Arena
    When pitting your “French Can” with another in the arena only two rules apply:

  • No Swearing

  • No Pinching or Biting (This has been disputed as two rules in one though recent research suggests that pinching and biting go hand in hand)So as you can see the arena is pretty much a free for all vicious bloody scramble for victory. Now while there are only two rules in the game it would only be fitting to have two ways to die. These are:

  • Be busted apart by your opponents shells and be left a smoldering wreck or,

  • Fall/Be Pushed off the edge of the arena into the infinite hole of blackness.Though to add a little fairness for those of us who are really bad at play games no matter how hard we try, three lives are given for you to waste.

Single/Two Player
Originally designed for two player combat, the new challenge has been taken up of programming an AI that can be battled for those of us who don’t have any friends. Otherwise there is always the good old fun two player duel which has you and a friend at the one keyboard. Why not over a network? Because when you start loosing the game there is nothing better to accidentally bump your friends reverse key, sending them shooting off the side of the arena and out into the black void.

Bonuses
What would a game be without a few bonuses here and there? In TANKWARZ a number of bonuses have been added to pop up during the game. These include:

  • Random Damage Shot - You get one shot to hit your opponent but with this shot a random amount of damage is dealt which may cause you to kill you foe in a single shot or merely scratch their paint.
  • Auto Fire - Instead of having to wait to load another shell and then fire this bonus allows you to fire shell after shell in quick succession for a limited amount of time.
  • Battery Recharge - Pretty much speaking for itself, this bonus recharges your battery allowing you to blast out that sonic blast so much sooner. (Assuming your battery is significantly depleted)
  • + More!Download the Demo!
    Here it is… the demo!.. Please keep in mind that this is only a quick put together of our progress and doesn’t feature any new breakthough technology and it is rather buggy but hopefully it will give you some insight into what we are aiming for.

So there you have it folks,

This had been brought to you by the friendly people at Concrete Panda - Putting the Panda in hard.

Well looks good, bring it on!

looks great man.:smiley:

Finally, a game that is both violent and strategic.//00T!

The demo’s have been uploaded in MAC and WIN formats so check em out!

They are in the first post.

Also thank you for the comments so far and its great to hear people finding it an interesting project.

The French Can? LOL! I think the word ‘retreat’ suits the French nicely. Man, I love the huge fat barrels on your guns. Super job so far. Watch you don’t cut yourself opening the French Can.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys. ZVWolf and I are endeavouring to get a final version out, but itll probably take a few more weeks

Ok, so far so good
There are some stuff to take care of: disable flying, put a collision sensor so he can only move when touching the ground. And add a bit more friction on the ground.
Hope to see more soon!

Just a quick note about the Windows release…
The number of lives selector before the game actually starts just has a slight problem with the text frame. Although you cant see how many lives you have selected when clicking the positive/negative buttons, it still works, and the number of lives actually selected will be viewable in game (after start is pressed).

This will be fixed in the next release

Thanks all

Just a notice -

Concrete Panda now has a website (somewhat temporary) but it features all the tankwarz downloads as well as news and other stuff like that .

Check it out at www.zanev.com and then just look under the concrete panda area.

Thanks

Brought to you by the friendly people at Concrete Panda

new terrain is pretty cool :smiley:

mmm. very stylized. Fun game. I think I’ve got some AI examples that don’t include python. It’s not real AI, it’s more like synthisized AI and deals alot with the near sensors, but for a game this simple it’s perfect. I’ll get it up here in just a sec.

There you go, the bullet collision doesn’t work, just thought I might let you know. But, if you wanna go all out programming go ahead. It’s a cool game.
